Second Tomb Raider game could be in pre-production
Tomb Raider is still nine months away from release, but Crystal Dynamics' global brand director Karl Stewart is hinting at the franchise's future, including a sequel that could already be in pre-production.
"You have to look at the future, you have to look at where ... It's not just one game," he told VideoGamer.com.
"At the end of this game we want her to be that strong female character that is willing to go and seek out mysteries and seek out tombs," he said. "She's going to be going to plenty of tombs in this game, but we're going to have somebody who wants to go on that adventure, who wants to be the person that she now is. That's the goal."
Stewart declined to reveal any more details this early on.
Crystal Dynamics is supposedly working on two more games: one an original IP for next-gen systems, and the other led by ex-God of War director Cory Barlog.
The brand director called the recent Tomb Raider rape controversy "unfortunate," arguing that "90 percent of people who reported on it didn't actually see the game."
Tomb Raider launches on March 5, 2013.
